Savannah, Georgia, will always be a wonderful host to visitors. You’ll never be at a loss for things to do in this beautiful Southern city at any time of year. But as we head into vacation season, Dream Finders Homes wants to be sure you mark your calendar for these top summer activities in Savannah!
Catch the Savannah Bananas in action. This collegiate baseball team delivers a whole different kind of game. The Bananas have been described as “part circus and part professional wrestling”. Of course, you can see skilled baseball players, but you’re just as likely to see choreographed dancing on the field, players in kilts, and the Man-Nanas cheerleading squad of middle-aged,out-of-shape men.
Trolley tours are a popular favorite for Savannah visitors. Take a trip to some popular historic places, like the American Prohibition Museum, Telfair Museum of Art, Owens-Thomas House, and the Georgia State Railroad Museum.
Also known as “Ghost City”, Savannah has ghost tours for every type of ghost-seeker: the family-friendly Grave Tales Ghost Tour, the “spirited” Ghost City Pub Crawl, and the check-your-pulse Beyond Good and Evil Tour and Dead of Night Tour.
Speaking of tours, get a different perspective on Savannah with a riverboat tour. Get on board an elegant riverboat and take a daytime, lunch, dinner, or sunset cruise along the Savannah River.
No trip to Savannah is complete without a side trip to Tybee Island. Just 18 miles from Historic Savannah, Tybee Island features a gorgeous, quintessentially tropical beach. You can take to the water on a fishing charter or dolphin watching tour. Be sure to visit the Tybee Island Light Station, Georgia’s oldest and tallest lighthouse.
Savannah is rich in history. It’s all around you! Plan to spend a full day (or longer) exploring the Historic Landmark District in Downtown Savannah. Wander through 22 scenic park squares, museums, and antebellum homes. The Savannah City Market dates back to the 18th century and today offers an enticing array of shops, restaurants, galleries, and more. While you’re at the City Market, cool off in the Ellis Square Fountain, an interactive fountain that’s even prettier at night with the rainbow lights.
Get a real taste of Savannah with a food tour around the city. Decide where you want to take your appetite: Southern Flavors, Southern Fried Expectations, Culinary & Cultural Walking Food Tour, Walktails & Bar Bites, or the Off-the-Beaten-Path Secret East Side Historic Walking Food Tour.
These are just some of the top summer activities in Savannah. This city is filled with diversions of all kinds!
